DORIS SALCEDO EXHIBITION @ MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART CHICAGO / FEB. 21 – MAY 24, 2015
If you ever in the Chicago area and want to see something artistic, go by the Museum of Contemporary Art for a look at the works of Colombian born sculptor Doris Salcedo.
Here’s a sampling from the museum website:
The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago presents the first retrospective of the work of renowned sculptor Doris Salcedo (Colombian, b. 1958). Salcedo—who lives and works in Bogotá—gained prominence in the 1990s for her fusion of postminimalist forms with sociopolitical concerns. The exhibition features all major bodies of work from the artist’s thirty-year career—most of which have never been shown together before—as well as the US début of her recent major work Plegaria Muda (2008–10).
Quick reminder that the exhibition is February 21 till May 24, 2015 so you have plenty of time to come and experience Salcedo’s work.
